Anyone in California want to track their car?

Hey,

I'm throwing a track event this coming Friday.

June 10th at Big Willow.

I have tons of room.

Let me know if you want to come out

Josh

I can offer you a $15 off coupon.. This event would normally cost you 250, it's the big track (2.5 mile long), comes with a photographer and everything, it would be a real shame to miss.

just for my own info, even if i'm 2,000 miles away:
- is this open to any car? or just Bimmers? (i know a few guys in Cali who might be interested)
- on a "private" track day like this, would you accept a car that is not normally accepted to an official track event, ie. my Spyder with no roll-cage?
if i ever move to Cali next year (quite possible), i'd love to attend private track days like this !!
Thanks and enjoy your track day !
Pat

It really is. We have already pre-purchased them so it's like a goodie bag. You should really cancel that other event. This is going to be one sick, fun and small event. Totally different then normal track days.

Yes, James is right on that.

We have two instructors there the whole day. It's the best bang for your buck.

Mike Bonanni and Jordan Yost

Google them. Both professional race car drivers. They're at your disposal for the day
